Welcome to the webpage of Summer Course on "Exergy and Its Applications for Better Environment", which will be held on April 30-May 4, 2012 in the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), Oshawa, Ontario. Please visit our website for regular updates.
Recently, exergy has become a new distinct discipline for system design, analysis, optimization and performance evaluation, and its use has expanded drastically. In this regard, exergy analysis appears to be a significant tool in: (a) addressing the impact of energy resource utilization on the environment and economics, (b) furthering the goal of more efficient energy resource utilization, (c) determining locations, types and true magnitudes of wastes and losses, (d) revealing whether or not and how much it is possible to design more efficient energy systems by reducing the inefficiencies, and (e) providing a sustainable development as a result of sustainably supply of energy resources. This is a timely course to serve academia and industry to provide further information and encourage people working in the area of energy to conduct exergy analysis for system design, analysis, optimization, and performance evaluation in large number of applications including power cycles, heat networking, cryogenics, chemical processes, distillation, desalination, and industrial and agricultural systems. In this event, the attendees will be trained through several lectures on exergy analysis given by the experts in this field.
